Fire reportedly razes Dangote refinery effluent plant

A section of Dangote Refinery is currently engulfed by fire.

Explosions were heard on Wednesday after a major fire outbreak at the refinery located at the Ibeju-Lekki area of Lagos State.

As of the time of filing this report, the Dangote group has yet to react to the fire outbreak.

Recall that Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote had disclosed that he fought and overcame a strong group of local and foreign mafia before establishing the $19 billion refinery.

Dangote said the mafia in the oil sector, who are stronger than those doing drugs, did everything they could to sabotage the refinery project.

Speaking at the Afreximbank annual meeting and AfriCaribbean Trade and Investment Forum in the Bahamas recently, Dangote said he never anticipated that the resistance would be harsh.

Meanwhile, Anambra South Senator, Ifeanyi Ubah, recently said Danote’s refinery will lead to a reduction in the pump price of petroleum products.

Ubah said when oil refineries in Nigeria start operating at full capacity, the price of fuel will reduce.
